Not Lincolnshire


Apologies to the Lincolnshire bound Lozman, we went to Walton Street market instead, mainly due to wifey getting up late, so unable to report on the relative merits (or not) of lovely Lincolnshire. Walton Street market used to be a thriving car boot and market, but seems to have degenerated into a counterfeit DVD and CD hypermarket. Apparently the Trading Standards people won't do anything because they are frightened of being duffed over and the police won't get involved because it is Trading Standards responsibility. The police in Hull tend not to get involved in very much but that's another story. It's a shame for all the people who used to enjoy a good "car boot" but I guess if the counterfeiters weren't selling anything they'd stop coming, so as long as the people of Hull keep buying, nothing will change. maybe I should move to Lincolnshire as well, were I'm sure they must have a better quality of car boot and market.

There doesn't look like much action going on there.

Would a 'car boot" be like the thing we call a "swap meet'? That one looks kind of dead.

What exactly is a car boot? I imagine your police dont want to get involved in the paperwork....its the same all over! You would think posting a few uncover guys to by the dvds and cds would take care of it..
